April has been quite a busy month with lots of traveling, which means a lot of blogging catching up to do.  Earlier this month we (@BahrainBloggers) were invited by the owner of Trousseau to have afternoon tea, scones and cake at the delightful store tucked away in Al Aali mall.  Walking into the shop you are greeted with a beautiful aroma of candles, french perfume and music .  Whether you’re a new bride, looking to furnish your home, looking for a gift or just love pretty things you will adore Trousseau and all it has to offer.  They stock gorgeous luxurious linen which are ideal for hospital stays when baby is born.  Owner Nancy and daughter Fadia Al Zain have  given Trousseau that personal touch and are in tune with the needs of their customers.  Everything in the store is handpicked and has a beautiful story behind the products.  Even the candles are all vegetable based with lead free wicks for a non toxic ambience in your home.  You can be sure to see Nancy there when you visit and be greeted with her warm southern hospitality.  Within the store is a little quaint tea room that serves an assortment of teas, coffees and absolutely delicious mouth watering cakes, scones and sandwiches.  A great little quiet place to catch up with friends and treat yourself to some affordable luxury.

One being my birthday and the next only the biggest thing to hit the fashion scene in Dubai!!  Fashion Forward is a fashion platform for Dubai and the Middle East — a fashion movement which provides a platform and a progressive direction for fashion in the region.  This is the first time that collections from more than 14 of the region’s most sought-after designers will be shown in one location.  FFWD will include catwalk presentations by established and emerging designers in the Middle East, there will be a Fashion Forum – an educational module to foster industry discussion, and an awards programme to recognize regional pioneers.  You will also be able to grab some gorgeous accessories, scarves, jewelry and so much more at the FFWD Pop Up Store. Fashion Forward is a biannual event delivered by Brag,marketing agency.  By hosting a series of forums with global role models and industry experts, FFWD aims to be a dynamic and ongoing platform that highlights strengths, inspires and nurtures industry growth and its wealth of talent, with the ultimate goal of driving forward the entire fashion industry in the region.
